Chinese pre-wedding customs are traditional Chinese rituals prescribed by the Book of Rites, the Book of Etiquette and Ceremonial and the Bai Hu Tong condensed into a series of rituals now known as the Three Letters and Six Rites. Traditionally speaking, a wedding that incorporates all 6 rites is considered a complete wedding.

The six traditional rites involved in a Chinese wedding are as follows:
- formal proposal
- giving of the eight characters of prospective bride to the groom’s side
- placement of the eight characters at the ancestral altar to confirm compatibility
- sending of betrothal gifts to the bride and return gifts to the prospective groom
- selection of an auspicious wedding date
- wedding ceremony
